Hi, I’m Dr. Alex (she/her/hers). I’m the founder and owner of Boston Pelvic Physical Therapy.
I’m a Doctor of Physical Therapy with advanced training and certification in pelvic floor rehabilitation through Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute. I am Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner Certified (PRPC) with over a decade of experience as a physical therapist and pelvic health expert.
I received both my doctorate degree in Physical Therapy and undergraduate degree in Rehabilitation Science from Northeastern University in Boston, MA.
I founded Boston Pelvic Physical Therapy to create a better model of care where every patient receives the time and individual attention you deserve to help you achieve your goals. After experiencing firsthand the lack of guidance provided for physical health and wellbeing during my own pregnancies and postpartum, I knew we could do better for our patients.
My specialties include pelvic floor physical therapy treatment for people who are; pregnant and postpartum, experiencing menopause, prostate cancer, and other urogynecological cancers; and people of all gender expressions with bowel, bladder, and sexual dysfunction across all adult age groups.
While living in New Orleans, I was a dedicated partner of the NOLA Transgender Institute, working with patients undergoing gender confirming surgeries. I am proud to serve the LGBTQIA+ community.
In addition to being a PT, I love spending time with my husband and two children, getting together with my girlfriends, and enjoying good food. Some fun facts about me are that I’ve run two marathons, played rugby in college, and did a brief stint working on a vineyard in New Zealand.
Hello! I am Dr. Rachel Newall (she/her)
I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy. I graduated from Springfield College with honors and have extensive post-graduate training in pelvic health for all genders, sports medicine, and trigger point dry needling.
I have practiced the art and science of research based physical therapy for the past 10 fulfilling years, working with a wide array of clients to improve their health and wellbeing in relation to the pelvic floor and musculoskeletal dysfunction. I believe in the importance of listening and addressing both body and mind as well as helping you feel comforted and supported throughout this process. I love doing this work, forming a team between the client and myself to move towards our shared goal of helping you be able to do the things that make you happiest, whether that mean preparing for the birth of a child, recovering postpartum, sneezing without leaking, being intimate with a partner pain free, returning to fitness or any other personal objective.
I live just north of Boston with my beautiful family: husband, daughter and huge fluffy dog. Passions of mine include learning and staying up to date on research, traveling the world, hiking, rock climbing, yoga and painting.
Please note Dr. Rachel is currently on Medical Leave.
Hello I’m Dr. Katie (she/her)
I have my doctorate degree in physical therapy from Northeastern University and my undergraduate degree in psychology from The Catholic University of America. Both of these opportunities helped develop my love for learning about the body, embracing the benefits of movement, and helping others feel better in their own bodies.
My passion for pelvic health began from my own search for pain relief and improved quality of life. I then became certified in treating pelvic health issues through Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute. I love working together with you to guide you in understanding how to move better and create concrete steps to reaching your goals, whether that be preparing to give birth; recovering postpartum or from pelvic surgery; limiting leaking when working out, running or laughing; or improving your pain so you can enjoy intimacy pain-free. I also have additional training in sports medicine, and dry needling.
Besides being a PT, I enjoy cooking, skiing, spending time at the beach, traveling, running, and hiking around the Boston area with my husband.
